CCSF will lose accreditation in 2014 - SFGate

To me, this is a perfect example of how lazy San Francisco voters are. The board of directors of CCSF are elected. In the last elections, the intelligent San Francisco voters all voted to raise the parcel tax (I am not necessarily opposed to that), BUT they also voted back in EVERY incumbent who was up for reelection. The voters literally said - "Oh you lead CCSF to the brink? Here is MORE money to you and as a reward, we will REELECT YOU.

Congratulations SF. We now no longer have a community college. When the need is possibly the greatest.

Thank you for screwing the students, folks. Go back to patting yourself on the back about how progressive you are and playing Candy Crush

Next time we have a local election, maybe we can have even fewer than 120k people vote. And if you vote, make sure you do no research what so ever. That way the cycle can continue.

from the above article: "City College is expected to appeal the decision."
They will get the necessary accreditation. No worries.

OF course...San Francisco voters of today are not at all interested in what happens to locals/natives and, families of the City prior to their own arrival . Why would they? Most are educated in other states, come here to make their money... party, live out their 20's/early 30's and then ultimately leave or rag on families and kids!. They don't care. Only natives or wealthy transplants with children that aren't destined to leave give a cra* on these issues.

I actually attended CCSF. If I still lived in the City or had any say so, I would have certainly voted and made my voice heard. I'm sorry...very sorry, is all I can say.

Good schools = residents that care about the future of their families and community. Perhaps CSM? DVC? I think you'll find a lot of good options. Consider demographics! I wish you well!

I have heard good things about Cana'da College down in the Valley, but definitely do your own research.

Check out www.baccc.net

It is the web-site for a consortium of bay area community colleges

I am actually quite shocked by this outcome. When the SHTF a year or so ago I thought that it would serve as a wake up call. I thought that both the administration and the teaching community would find a way to overcome differences and pull together. However, my spirits darkened and slid downward as I witnessed the severe acrimony on every related discussion thread on the Chron's site. It was clear that "labor" and "management" wanted to fight each other and if something did not change they would fight all the way to the cliff then over it.

Well, they went over it.

Goodbye, idiots.

Laney College in Oakland and its parent system the Peralta Colleges (located in Oakland, Berkeley & Alameda) have very good instructors and deserving reputation.

Hey as long as there are new trendy (and usually bad) restaurants opening and wannabe entrepreneurs are starting their stupid startups then all is good in SF. Education for those who can only afford community college, affordable housing and all these pesky issues are simply not cool enough for SF residents to indulge! They can get rid of the entire education system from the city and convert those buildings to million dollar condos to cater to the only class of people this city cares about and suitable for.

lol

now, my question- why do people go to community college in sf at all? its more expensive to live there, expensive to commute from elsewhere- so why go to community college there at all when there are so many community colleges in the less-expensive suburbs and yet-less-expensive beyond?

*shrug*

way back in my day, one reason people went to community college was because it cost less than the universities. i guess that no longer applies!
